While the rest of the country was soaked to the bone, we were blessed with sunny skies, warm beaches and enough baking to feed an army … bliss.

While the ocean was too rough to go across the bar, the water was still warm enough for many a swim and a dig. Fish were caught, raw oysters were consumed and enough shells were collected to fill the back seat pockets of every car in the Pukeokahu District (has anyone discovered any strange smells lately?) My favourite activity was our big walk around Kohi Point. I was so proud of those little legs, climbing up and down

We all stayed at the Ohope Beach Top 10 Holiday Park, which I must recommend. It was quiet, very clean and right next to the beach. The staff were super friendly and helpful, and didn’t bat an eyelid when eight small children dug several four foot deep holes in their beach volleyball court, priceless!
